I'm looking to make upgrades to my desktop in order to play SMITE. I have an Emachines EL1358G. First of all I want to know if it is worth the trouble.Second I want to no if everything would work fine if I did put these on my desktop.Lastly I want to know if there is something I am missing , like I'm sure I would have to buy a new case. I'm looking to put in these:
-MSI N210-512D2 GeForce 210 512MB 64-Bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
-Team Elite Plus 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model TPD34G1333C901
-AMD Athlon X2 340 Trinity 3.2GHz Socket FM2 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor AD340XOKHJBOX

1. The video card needs to be low profile, if you were to keep the case.

2. You already have 3 GB installed, probably 1 + 2gb sticks. Just buy 1 2gb stick to match the one you have for a total of 4.

3. That processor will not work due to being FM2, your MB is AM3.

Lastly if you really want to improve the build you'll need a new/larger power supply, your 220w doesn't leave much room for improvement. Furthermore you'd likely be better served just starting from scratch because not much in that PC would make it into a new build. Although you do have a capable computer for everyday stuff so starting a new foundation entirely would be my suggestion.
